I walked into the Thread Shed...
This is what the quilt blocks looked like on the design wall:
I started playing around with the extra blocks on the table:
I like this vertical design...

This appeals to me.
I will continue with this lay out...
I pieced 51 more key hole blocks today.
Look what the mail man delivered today:

It's great when I am moving back and forth from the

I always have my pins where I need them!
Did you get your 2012 Quilting Arts Calendar?
It's time to turn to the month of February...
Guess who is Mr. February?
This is Gunnr, our Calendar Boy!
I just love his face...
and so did everyone at Quilting Arts Magazine!
13 Rows Pieced so far...
I need to add 2 more rows.
It is 6pm and I am quitting for the day:
There are a total of 160 key hole blocks.
I am using 105 for the Calypso quilt.
That leaves 55 leftover blocks.....I am thinking lap quilt.
More to come...
